founder & CEO

Kristian Hansen

                          Kristian founded MNTN in 2018 with a vision to                                create the world's most sustainable lifestyle company.

      An outspoken Climate Activist, explorer, serial entrepreneur, and designer, Kristian built MNTN from the ground up.

As the architect of the planet over profit business model, Kristian hopes to pioneer a new kind of eco-conscious capitalism where the success of a company is not measured solely on its revenue but on its positive impact on the world.

                         "The first page of our quarterly review is a review of how much of an                         impact we had on the world. How many trees we've planted, how many                    people we've helped, how much plastic we've pulled out of the ocean, etc."         

"To me, that's what matters and that's what we're all about here at MNTN."

Kristian was born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, but grew up in Dubai, UAE for the majority of his life. He went to high school at Pomfret School, in Pomfret CT, and has continued his higher education taking classes at both Harvard University and the University of Pennsylvania. He is currently studying Climate Science, Data Analytics, and working towards his eventual goal of an MBA.

Kristian is an avid traveler who has visited 70 different countries so far on his quest to visit every country on Earth. He credits the perspective he has gained from traveling to the ideology behind MNTN.

"I think Education and traveling are the cure to so many of the world's problems, once you see enough places, understand the amazing culture we have on this planet, and gain an understanding that we're all human beings no matter what we look like, who we love, or where we're from, a lot of barriers are broken."
